“Go to the hospitals and health centres to avoid complications during delivery” Aime Bosenibamwe; governor of Northern Province has advised women in Burera district.
Governor Bosenibamwe said this on 29th December 2012 during the event to officially open Ndongizi health centre in Cyeru sector in Burera district.
This comes after some women in Burera district give birth from their homes and get complications because health centres can be accessed in distant areas.
In his speech, the governor asked Burera residents to embrace family planning and visit hospitals and other health units for antenatal checkups and when going to give birth.
“Be exemplary in using family planning and note that it’s not allowed for women in Burera to give birth from home,” he asserts.
Bosenibamwe urged Cyeru sector residents to make good use of Ndongozi health centre and reduce malnutrition cases in children and other diseases.
Ndongozi health centre was named St. Aloysius and was built by Catholic Diocese of Ruhengeri funded by Père des enfants Rwandais (Father of Rwandan Children) project.
During the event, the catholic diocese was acknowledged for its role in education, health sector and other activities aimed at developing Rwandans.
Being the 17th health centre in Burera district, Ndongozi health centre cost Rwf150 million and took five years to construct.
